During the last week, I made a few new discoveries. On a trip to New York City, I discovered buildings with amazing architectural details while walking around Soho.
I also visited Aero, a decorative furnishings store owned by Interior Designer, Thomas O'Brien.
It was a pleasant visual experience being surrounded by his designs, favorite decoratives and furnishings.
With a newfound interest in architectural models, I took home a souvenir from Aero.
My desire to take home more souvenirs were getting stronger by the minute but I refrained and now have a wish list filled with delightful things like lamps, tables, artwork. I could go on-and-on.
I was also excited to catch a glimpse of Mr. O'Brien himself, hard at work. It was one of those moments where I wish I had his latest book, American Modern, handy for personalization, as I only purchased it 2 weeks ago. Given how busy he seemed to be, I don't think I would have had the courage to disturb him to sign a book anyway.
The trip was gratifying. It leaves me with a yearn to go back again very soon and make more new discoveries.
